Ambassador To Panama Just Quit, Refuses To Work For A Racist Donald Trump

According to NBC News, the U.S. Ambassador to Panama has resigned from his post, saying he can no longer serve under Donald Trump.

NBC News reported Friday that John Feeley resigned his position because he feels he cannot “comfortably” serve under Trump.

In a statement, the State Department said Feeley decided to retire for “personal reasons.”

Feeley’s resignation comes after Trump reportedly referred to Haiti and African countries as “shithole countries” in a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday.

“As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies. My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come,” Feeley said, according to an excerpt of his resignation letter read to Reuters.

A State Department spokeswoman confirmed Feeley’s departure, saying that he “has informed the White House, the Department of State, and the Government of Panama of his decision to retire for personal reasons, as of March 9 of this year.”
